Not a single grain of caviar lost

Regarding: H. Ty Warner. I can see it now -- a little plush piggy in an orange jumpsuit. The heart-shaped tag in his ear reads:

"I'm Greedy, the jailhouse pig.

My profits were bigger than big,

But from paying my taxes I fled.

Oh well, life's not so bad in Club Fed."

How sad that a man who brought so much fun to so many, and got so rich doing it, had to turn criminal out of sheer greed. The $5 million in taxes that Mr. Warner evaded paying seems like an enormous fortune to ordinary people. But to a multibillionaire, paying his taxes, as most of us do, would not have taken a single grain of caviar from his plate.
